It appears that Red Faction will be hitting the big screens as a movie of the game is currently in the works. The movie will be set in conjunction with the next game, THQ’s core Vice President, Danny Bilson states.
When speaking with CVG in New York city last weekend, the game’s boss revealed THQ’s new ‘trans-media’ strategy, which involves the development of movie projects in conjunction with it’s games.
Bilson added that THQ is about to announce “some really interesting stuff” in relation to the trans-media strategy. When Bilson was asked which games the announcement will be releated to, he simply replied: “Red Faction”.
“My game is going to get made either way but what I do is I’m giving these movie guys the opportunity to meet me two or three years at the end with a triple-A, awesome game and a triple-A, awesome movie that compliment each other – and certainly don’t repeat each other – and start to build a world and a fiction and all of that.”
“You’re going to see some announcements from us soon that are very robust in that area and it’s nothing like you’ve seen before.”
In the same chat, Bilson also stated that Red Faction 4 will feature insane upgrades.
